Last season, the CCA competed in the Etoile des Besseges, Tour of Antalya, and several other European races. The Cambodian members of the team include Chantou Kim and Seyha Yoeurn. The CCA was also part of the Cambodia Cycling Tour 2020, which the Kingdom hosted early this year. The race was the biggest and most prestigious cycling event ever held in Cambodia. Cambodian riders will benefit from training with and having the Italian cycling legend in their midst. Rebellin is one of the most successful riders in the history of the UCI Road World Cup and UCI ProTour classics, with more than 50 top-ten finishes to his name.
